, if not impossible to defend. that's why mitt kept him on the defensive all the time, facts are stubborn things. he could not defend the record that he has, whether it be the effects of the stimulus package. i thought dad dodd frank was explained by mitt better than anybody i have ever seen before. of course, the view that president obama seems to think that government is more efficient and does things better than the private sector, which is all about this choice that people can make if they want to choose an alternative to traditional medicare. finally, you know, you notice that a president obama did not respond to the $761 billion taken out of medicare. he couldn't. because we tried to put it back in when we were debating obamacare, in fact, it was my amendment to put it back in and it went down on a party-line vote. >> greta: you know, while we sort of watch this -- obviously, politics vis very serious and there is a drama and intrigue to it. one of the things that was not discussed last night and which is really serious in and is ongoing is the sequestration. i realize there is only 90 minutes
defense. used to be a prosecutor. have you ever seen a case like this? and what is the explanation? kind of seems like a path mentality that all these girls worked together to do such a horrible thing. >> it is. and unfortunately we're seeing more and more of this with our young people. we're seeing children who wouldn't ordinarily do something like this if they were by themselves. they would probably just walk by that sweet lady. 48 years old and mentally disabled. why don't you pick on somebody your own size? this is so disturbing. that's why we've seen them charged as adults here. they're all underage. they could have been taken into the juvenile system. but they have all been charged as adults. they're facing 20, 40 years depending on how many charges are stacked against them. >> it almost seems like they were feeding off each other in this video. how damaging is that video to a judge, to a jury seeing that and how brutal it was? >> that's exactly right. and it's not just that some of them are throwing punches. but it's that encouraging. there's something in the law called party to a
obam has to connect those two things. he can't get defensive. the president, on the other hand, has to deflect from that. he has to make the debate about the choice between himself and governor romney and press him about specifics. try to make the argument that the -- that governor romney's policies would take us off of a path of recovery we might be on right now. and he can't get defensive as well. both men, when they get into the defensive posture, tend not to do very well in debates. >> what do you think is the most treacherous ground for each of them? what is the thing often -- i'm sure you've studied a zillion hours of debate tapes. what triggers debates in both of them? >> when both get on defense, when they have to defend positions they're uncomfortable with, they tend to get defensive. that's what caused the $10,000 bet with governor romney and that what caused the moment where president obama, then senator obama, told hillary she was likeable enough. i think both of them, when put on their heels, tend to make mistakes. >> let's play a clip of that from the hillary clinton/b
. ronald reagan lost most of that debate. he was on the defensive. jimmy carter was attacking him. and then he had this positively brilliant close about are you better off? and he did it so well. peter hart did a bunch of focus groups before and after. clearly reagan had a lower threshold. he had to prove to people he was acceptable. >> that's what mitt -- you're describing mitt romney. you're describing mitt romney because voters -- >> voters don't have the kind of negatives. he did not have 51% of people having an unfavorable view. secondly, you could say mitt romney is as good a debater all you want. gipper against mitt romney when it comes to charm, people saying i want to have this guy on television for four years, it's no contest. >> willie, following up on what mike barnicle said, the one thing mitt romney has going for him is who he is running against. there are a lot of republicans that voted for barack obama that are disappointed. there are a lot of independents that voted for obama who are disappointed. there are a lot of conservatives who don't want to vote for them th
a 5 trilli$5 trillion. -- another $2 trillion in defense spending. >> just three days into the first presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start tuning in on wednesday night and when they do, governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america and better opportunity for all of our citizens, and i think that's when you're
american people he was up for the job. second thing is that romney was aggressive, obama was defensive. the president was always on the defense. part because he didn't seem to have a plan for what he wanted to achieve tonight but there is romney also being aggressive and saying he gets criticized for tax break for oil companies and responldz to the president saying wait a minute. i'm not in favor of that but just remember you gave five times to green energy company that's went belly up so. this is a very good about zit ziding obama but questioning him and pulling issues back to him. this is a the third item, tone. president obama came across as irritated and looking down. never looking up. and this is romney looking at the president, just a wrong tone. romney was president yismt had humor, who knew he had a sense of humor, i've got five boys i'm used to hearing people say things that aren't true and hoping i'll believe them. you're entitled to your own place and house but not your own facts. he was pretty darn funny. and there is a tone of bipartisanship. in 2008 barack obama did a goo
. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor
in defense cuts that his running mate paul ryan voted for, he implied that would hurt suicide prevention programs for veterans even though the v.a. would be exempt from that, so i'm not sure he even understood what it was he was talking about. but at least he tried. at least veterans got a mention from him. even if it didn't make sense in policy terms. you do know that defense and veterans are two different -- at some point it should be possible with 40 days left to say veterans have to be more than just an applause line. right? you don't just get to use them for a photo op like the decommissioned battleship you used as a backdrop when you introduced paul ryan inexplicably in front of a battleship, another time when you didn't mention the war. even if you're not willing to talk about the war we are in that you would be taking over, veterans are not a hypothetical construct. the way they're treated is not an esoteric consequence of how we feel about them as a nation or how much military spending we have which is how mitt romney described it today. 40 days out from the election with the is

politics and on the defensive. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> only 33 days to election and an entirely new dynamic in the battle between president obama and mitt romney. the republican nominee is widely seen as the winner of last night's debate while even the president's strongest supporters now concede he was not at the top of his game. and now the president is back out there on the campaign trail. he's getting ready to speak at a rally over at the university of wisconsin in madison. we're going to be hearing from him live this hour. but first, listen to what he said about mitt romney at a rally earlier today before he left denver. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [ laughter ] but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need anymore teachers in our classrooms.
in and not look scared or defensive. he has to be cool and calm and confident and own the space. that is the most important thing for him. if he looks skiddish. those optics will be the most devastating thing for him. you would think would be about the pressure would be on the incumbent to defend the last four years in office. but in this debate, it is clear that 100% is on how does mitt romney handle the 47% question? >> i agree with crystal to put in other terms the undecided voters are sitting with their back toward the stage. the voice and he has to be strong and have an answer. the problem he has is which every way he turns he loses a piece of the argument. ro romney is going to lose a piece where he turns. one that he has used before, is to say look, i care about the 100%. look at what i did in massachusetts with romney care. if he give that is answer, he loses the strength of the argument. but i think he has no choice. i think he has to say that like the president, when the president in 2008 was overheard at a fundraiser talking about people clinging to funs and religion that people shorth

know court reporters are smarter about this. court reporters have seen high priced defense lawyers deliver brilliant closing arguments. court reporters don't even say who won. they wait, they wait hours sometimes days for the jury to vote and then tell them who won. court reporters see lawyers with the best argument and the most engaging style lose cases every day and they see the opposite happen every day. frequently juries will tell court reporters they didn't care about the testimony that the news media thought was the most important thing. they based their decision on something else that was said or not said. hanging around courtrooms guessing what juries are going to do is a humbling experience. i think you should watch these debates the way you should watch a trial. when the lawyers make their opening statements in court you shouldn't think one of them just won. we are going to hear from a couple of witnesses next week. and then we'll hear the final arguments on october 22nd. and then you should wait 15 days just 15 days and find out who won, won the debates right here, at th

this year's plunge to bureaucratic inertia at the department of defense. >> face it, the pentagon does a lot of things really well in keeping us safe. sometimes some of the social issues it really just doesn't have the motivation that it has with other issues. part of it is because we're focused to keep america safe. i get that. >> in florida, absentee ballot request in florida were less than half the total. in virginia, they are at 1% of the 2008 levels. in ohio, north carolina, this year's request are one-tenth. the pentagon has not spent estimated 15 to 20 million per needed to establish the voting assistance offices that the d.o.d. is required by law to set up at all installations. >> it's the best it has been. we have the meth and means at the disposal, great website with online wizard to walk folks through. we have static download. go to ftvap.gov or hero's vote.org. >> three american troops were killed in eastern afghanistan today. that puts the death pole in afghanistan -- the death toll in afghanistan over 2,000. national security correspondent jennifer griffin shows us the video of
's argument is breathtakingly dishonest. he says mitt romney wants a $5 trillion tax cut. that's defensible because he doesn't want to lower the rates. then he says in order to pay for it he has to raise tax on the middle class. the study he's because that on admits it's making that. you. mitt romney has never proposed raising taxes on the middle class. you might as well -- it's just as plausible to say mitt romney is going to pay for this tax cut by invading canada and seizing their oil wells. it's fictional assertions they are passing off as fact and saying romney is campaigning on raising middle class taxes. meanwhile the only way to pay for all of the spend can that barack obama has done and will continue to do under his budget is to raise taxes. a dollar spent is a dollar taxed. >> style is important in debates. and john kennedy when people listened on the radio did not win the first debate. he won the presidency because looking at the two of them on television, richard nixon lost the debate temperature that happened last night and barack obama has to do better on style. bill: in momen
and defense of the homeland. it is a nice word to use. it is a nice term. >> usually, maria, republicans use that word and quite effectively. >> yeah. actually, that's why i think it is very smart for the president to do this and ann is right. it does work. i think he is smart to do this for the simple reason that what it really means is betting on america. it really gives the president a chance not just to contrast his policies against mitt romney's and how the president's policies will build out the middle class, and how romney's policies will build out the 1%, but it makes him focus or let's the focus be on what romney has actually done throughout his lifetime. on his taxes we see that he has invested in foreign countries with secret corporations in bermuda, banks in the cayman islands, switzerland -- >> a lot of americans invest in foreign countries. doesn't mean they're less patriotic. >> but it means that mitt romney's policies are not focused on building out the middle class in america. that's where i think it comes down. the contrast between somebody that really understands what it i

"i'm so sorry." some movie trailer came out, it's wrong, it's disgusting. he did it, hillary did it, susanries did it, jay carney did it. why are they pandering this way? right here in america we have a group in dearborn that's trying to stop freedom of speech. where's the president on this in. >> because the left, contrary to popular opinion, is not the defender of free speech. you know, anytime you hear a person use the term "hate speech" you are listening to an attack on the first amendment, because you're hearing an argument that says there are things that says there are things so far out of the mainstream that they ought to be banned. slate, the online liberal magazine this
in the words of the secretary of defense, devastated by these defense cuts, they'll also have hundreds of, well, thousands and thousands of dollars of debt on their shoulders that were amassed by this administration. because the president adds about a trillion dollars a year to the national debt. so these guys, if they keep voting -- if anybody who's a young person going to college today keeps voting for the president -- they get more debt, fewer jobs and a smaller military. i represent a different course. i'll make sure the young people of today have great jobs tomorrow and a brighter, prosperous future. that's a difference between us.

named to defense secretary, said what's good for gm is good for america, and vice versa, he was ridiculed because most people understood that what is good for the big corporation in terms of profits is not necessarily good for workers, even though at that time gm was unionized and engine charlie's words more likely the fact then than they are right now. the fact is for the last 30 years america has seen corporations do better and better and better and yet the median wage has gone absolutely nowhere, adjusted for inflation. most people are more insecure in terms of their jobs and their benefits are drying up. corporate profits should not necessarily come at the expense of workers but, in fact, that is exactly what has happened and the bain framework, the bain strategy is at the center of this strategy overall. >> harvest is a very interesting word that he used. it's kind of like lingo, not a few years ago, you know, the term "out of the box." i remember back in the '80s when farming wasn't too bad and a certain player harvested so many numbers or we're going to go in and harv
